From an amazing frolic in the snow by an unexpected animal, to a good-hearted seminarian traveling back from March for Life in DC that decided to brighten stranded passengers spirits, to an amazing time-lapse video. Here are our top 3 East Coast blizzard video picks:

One day after hundreds of Nebraska and Iowa students took part in the March for Life in Washington, D.C., their “pro-life” signs were turned into sleds. Packed snow was shaped into church altars. Tree branches were made into crosses. And games and singing turned into multiple-hour events as the young people found ways to pass the time on the snow-covered Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Their buses were among 500 vehicles stranded along about 23 miles of Interstate 76 in the winter storm system that slammed the Eastern U.S. The Midlanders — all safe — became stuck Friday evening about two hours east of Pittsburgh, between Bedford and Somerset.

After nearly 24 hours, most of the roughly 500 stranded Nebraskans and Iowans were either on their way home or at area hotels for the night.

One of the seminarians from the Archdiocese of Omaha, who was joining the students on their March For Life decided to make the most of it:


When you’re stranded on a turnpike in #Pennsylvania, you pull out a trumpet and start to play ‘Let it Snow!’ This is Scotts Watts, one of the seminarians for the Archdiocese of Omaha , playing to entertain stranded folks. #blizzard2016Good spirits are all you need to push through a tough battle. Great to see this from #Omaha locals.
